ANCONA, Italy and WARSAW, Poland, February 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Orange Polska is currently working with Aethra® Telecommunications to test the possibilities offered by the Fiber-to-the-Distribution-Point (FTTdp) technology.
The FTTdp architecture is based on the concept of using the last tens of meters of copper to overcome the issues related to fiber cabling inside existing buildings, giving the operators lower costs and guaranteed deployment times.
Fiber is cabled up to the basement / floor of the building, where single user GPON to VDSL2 nodes are installed; the FTTdp nodes are then "reverse powered" over the same copper pairs used for data, thanks to a power supply connected in the home of the customer.
FTTdp will give to Orange Polska customers the same triple play experience and services offered to FTTH customers, with 200Mbps download speeds, voice and IPTV.
Lab tests were finalized in December and field trial in Warsaw started early January will take several months.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
